This is Ruby's second litter of Golden Mountain Doodles! A mountain doodle is a mix between a poodle, a bernese mountain dog and a Golden Retriever.
Golden Mountain Doodles or Golden Bernedoodles, have a great mix of trainability, people pleasing personality and devoted, confident family dog all wrapped up in a miniature size with a soft, thick no/low shedding coat.
These puppies are all wavy and phantom (two colored). Ruby has 3 boys and 4 girls. Mom and dad are both totally non-shedding and we anticipate that these babies will be the same.

The babies have grown and changed so much over the last week! They are all using the dog door 100% to go potty outside. They run in and out throughout the day. We have play time in the living room each day as well and they are just learning to take treats from our hands. They are all eating hard crunch dog food and doing well with that transition as well. This next week we will have vet checks and we will continue to work on individual socialization and basic training.

The puppies are all growing right on schedule. They have been spending time outside every day in our beautiful early summer weather.
The puppies are all very steady on their feet now and are getting really playful (especially with each other). They are doing great with their potty training by using the potty area about 95% of the time and they are keeping their beds clean all of the time.
Puppies are now transitioning over to solid dry crunch kibble as they are getting their teeth. We will keep offering soft food until they all have their molars.
This is week three of the socialization period. This week the puppies have begun to learn and be shaped by other adult dogs in the household but especially mom. Learning dog manners is a skill that can only be taught by other dogs! We always watch interactions with other dogs closely. Mom is really the best teacher as she will stop or pin puppies that are overly energetic or that aren't picking up on cues to settle down. This interaction is important to learning good dog social skills. They are also learning how to use their teeth without causing damage. They teach each other that lesson as they constantly mouth and play with each other.
We will give the puppies their Neopar vaccines this week. Neopar helps develop immunity to Parvo--it is the only vaccine that is effective at this young age as these puppies still have passive immunity from nursing with mom. Some vets prefer to give full immunizations at 6 weeks of age but shots at this early stage are less than 30% effective. They have a much better immune response at 8 weeks. Our neonatal specialist recommends waiting until 8 weeks for full immmunization. Parvo is the most prevalent puppy illness so getting a head start with Neopar is important. We will talk more about vaccines in the take home information.
This week our puppies usually hit what is called a fear period. This period can last only an hour or a few days. We will take extra care to be sure that if they exhibit any fear towards anything we will scale back and individually help them overcome those fears slowly. Yawning, crying, hiding or avoiding are all signs of fear in a puppy. We will keep a close eye on activity to help them through any signs of fear or anxiety. Ruby's puppies are getting lots of child socialization as they are still living with Ruby and Ruby's family. Ruby's 'kids' are very familiar with puppies and they are a great help with working with our sweet newborns.
